Winnipeg Folk Fest 2012 Interview Series: Abigail Washburn
Abigail Washburn sat down with KVSC’s veteran deejay Bridget at the 2012 Winnipeg Folk Festival in July. The two discussed folk festival workshops, various world and musical influences and how Washburn almost moved to China to become a lawyer but instead got distracted by a banjo.
